Four video interviews - Tom Slinsgby, Nina Curtis, Nathan Outteridge, and James Spithill

Tom Slingsby Interview

The Australia SailGP team, skippered by Tom Slingsby, relished the strong nor’easterlies that blasted down Sydney Harbour today. Recovering from deep in the fleet on the first two races to finish 4th and 2nd, the Aussie team booked a place in the event final, capitalising on their momentum to sail an almost faultless race and winning by a clear margin from the USA team with the Spanish 3rd on the podium.

Nina Curtis Interview

Olympian and Volvo sailor Nina Curtis is the sixth sailor on the Australia SailGP team, participating in the Women’s Pathway Program (WPP). Racing for just the second time on the boat in what were testing conditions, Nina was smiling from ear to ear as she talked about her day on the water and as a member of the winning team for the Sydney event.

Nathan Outteridge Interview

After the dramas of Day 1 of Sail GP Sydney when the Japanese were left ‘bowless’ on their starboard side, Nathan Outteridge made the most of Ben Ainslie’s offer to borrow the British platform for Day 2. While The Japanese team just missed out on a place in the finals, Nathan revealed some entertaining details about the minor tweaks they had to do to the controls on the British boat to make it feel more like home.

Jimmy Spithill Interview

Jimmy Spithill and the USA SailGP Team have had their fair share of bad luck in the season so far, and while the USA boat got through to the finals race and finished 2nd, he still loves to play the underdog! He talks here about what it will take to match the consistency of the Australian and British teams when the breeze is up and he also suggests that we should be prepared for very different conditions from a summer event in San Francisco, when the last event of the season is held there in March 2022.
